The E90 sedan is the last in the line of great 4 door 3 Series BMW's. Too bad.

Buying my first BMW

While enjoying the benefits of a company car, I really miss driving with the top down. Therefore, it's time to start looking for a weekend top-down fun machine. I targeted the 2001-2002 year 3 series just to keep the cost reasonable but after reading the huge forum responses to misc reliability issues (transmissions being one), I'm having serious doubts. Any thoughts on the issue would be appreciated (this is probably like throwing a steak in the dog pound).

Hi: I have a 2002 Z3 2.5 M-series Roadster Dakar II Yellow
I absolutely love it. Has 111,000 miles on it and drives like brand new. Heads turn everywhere it goes and I never take it out without someone commenting on it.
I would like to know how many of these were made in U.S and Europe.
Does anyone out there know where I would find this info?
Thanks!

Question Brunswick to Florida timing for ED?

A great time at Muenchen Welt and autobahn was had by all, but the wait for redelivery is really testing my patience. The Fedora discharged my Z4 on 18.11.09 in Brunswick. I guess customs and Ag inspection can take a couple of weeks. Has anyone experienced earlier timing?

Hi Bimmer community!

I'm new to the community and right off the bat I have a question...lol. I own a 2003 530i and absolutley love it. Recently my passanger side low beam light went out. I replaced the buld myself thanks to a post from this community but it still didn't work. I took that same buld and plugged it into the lead on the drivers side and it worked. Do I need to replace the low beam housing or is there something else I can try first.

Thanks in advance,

Your Bimmer brother

Eric,
